Field day

I spent most of the day (30.4.07) at large in the PBC area with Will Bowell. We covered several sites and had fantastic success.
I started the day with 26 Barwits and a Knot at Maxey and continued with a further 18 Barwits and a Turnstone at Deeping Lakes. The other big highlight was a couple of beautiful summer Black Terns at Fletton Brick Pit (LB1), flying over a pair of first-winter Little Gulls.

Day totals included:

Bar-tailed Godwit, 47,
Turnstone, 1,
Knot, 1,
Black Tern, 2,
Little Gull, 2,
Greenshank, 4,
Common Sandpiper, 2,
Dunlin, 1,
Wheatear, 6,
Hobby, 2,
Grey Partridge, 2.
